September 20, 2012

A photo gallery has been created on the California-Nevada Annual Conference website,, showing photos of Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr., the Rev. Siosifa ("Sifa") Hingano, pastor of Genesis United Methodist Church in San Jose, and other members of the Conference visiting Tonga in early August.

During the trip, Hingano officially handed over the keys of an ambulance that was donated by the Sanger and the Fresno Fig Garden Rotary Clubs, to the Tongan Minister of Health, Lord Tuifitu.
The group also visited many historic locations:
  • Tupou College, the oldest secondary high school in the South Pacific;
  • Sia'atoutai Theological College, for a welcoming ceremony;
  • Mo'ungo 'Olive College, where many items for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library were donated by Genesis UMC in San Jose;
  • Kolonga Clinic, where medical supplies were donated by Genesis UMC in San Jose; and
  • the Vava'u Islands.
